When the Words Just Won't

When the words just won’t come to your head

And the only thing to say is the thing you left unsaid

Tears in the dirt like the words on the page
Of a poem that you never wrote
Tears will leave you without pain
Yet in leaving leave a little hope
(for today)

















The hills run high
And the sky is wide
The brightness of the stars tonight
I see in your eyes
Tonight- I see in your eyes
Such a sad, sad sigh
Escapes your lips, escapes your mind
The coldness never leaves your side
On a night like tonight
Tonight I see
Tonight

Tripping fingers over strings and keys in wordless lines
Try to write and rewrite your life a thousand times

Trapped in your hurt like a bird in a cage
Never going where you want to go
Never saying what you want to say
Yet sleeping only brings another day
(of pain)

The hills run high
And the sky is wide
The brightness of the stars tonight
I see in your eyes
Tonight- I see in your eyes
Such a sad, sad sigh
Escapes your lips, escapes your mind
The coldness never leaves your side
On a night like tonight
Tonight I see
Tonight
